REQUEST FOR INDUSTRY COMMENTS (RFIC)
ON A REQUEST FOR STANDING OFFERS 
FOR
PUBLIC OPINION RESEARCH SERVICES 
FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF CANADA

Responses must be submitted by 2:00 pm Eastern Daylight Savings
Time on 
August 8th, 2014


1.	NATURE OF REQUEST FOR INDUSTRY COMMENTS

This is not a bid solicitation. This RFIC will not result in the
award of any contract, therefore, potential suppliers of any
goods or services described in the attached project outline
should not earmark stock or facilities, nor allocate resources,
as a result of any information contained in this RFIC. Nor will
this RFIC result in the creation of any source list, therefore,
whether or not any potential supplier responds to this RFIC will
not preclude that supplier from participating in any future
procurement. Also, the procurement of any of the goods and
services described in this RFIC will not necessarily follow this
RFIC. This RFIC is simply intended to solicit feedback from
industry with respect to the matters described in this RFIC.

2.		NATURE AND FORMAT OF RESPONSES REQUESTED

Respondents are requested to provide their comments, concerns
and, where applicable, recommendations on how the requirements
or objectives described in the project outline could be
satisfied. Respondents should explain any assumptions they make
in their responses.

3.		RESPONSE COSTS

Canada will not reimburse any respondent for expenses incurred
in responding to this RFIC.

4.			TREATMENT OF RESPONSES:

Use of Responses:  Responses will not be formally evaluated.
However, the responses received may be used by Canada to modify
procurement strategies. Canada will review all responses
received by the RFIC closing date. Canada may, in its
discretion, review responses received after the RFIC closing
date.

Review Team:  A review team composed of representatives from
PWGSC will review the responses on behalf of Canada. Canada
reserves the right to hire any independent consultant, or use
any Government resources, which it deems necessary to review any
response. Not all members of the review team will necessarily
review all responses.

Confidentiality:  Respondents should mark any portions of their
response that they consider proprietary or confidential. Canada
will treat those portions of the responses as confidential to
the extent permitted by the Access to Information Act.

Follow-up Activity:  Canada may, in its discretion, contact any
respondents to follow up with additional questions or for
clarification of any aspect of a response.

5.		ENQUIRIES

Because this is not a bid solicitation, Canada will not
necessarily respond to enquiries in writing or by circulating
answers to all potential suppliers. However, respondents with
questions regarding this RFIC may direct their enquiries to:

Anne Laurin at (613) 993-0047 or by email at:
anne.laurin@pwgsc-tpsgc.gc.ca


6.			SUBMISSION OF RESPONSES

Time and Place for Submission of Responses:  Suppliers
interested in providing a response should deliver it directly to
the Contracting Authority by the time and date indicated on page
1 of this solicitation document. The preferred method of
response is by e-mail at: 

anne.laurin@pwgsc-tpsgc.gc.ca 

Responsibility for Timely Delivery: Timely delivery and correct
direction of responses is the sole responsibility of the
respondent. PWGSC will not assume or have transferred to it
those responsibilities.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the
Contracting Officer named above.


7.			2015 RENEWAL OF PUBLIC OPINION RESEARCH STANDING OFFERS

The Public Opinion Research Directorate (PORD) of Public Works
and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) provides advisory,
coordination and knowledge management services in the field of
Public Opinion Research (POR) to federal departments and
agencies. As part of this role, PORD in collaboration with the
Communication Procurement Directorate (CPD) of PWGSC, is
responsible for developing procurement tools, including Standing
Offers for POR.
As you may know, the current POR Standing Offers that came into
effect on April 1, 2010, includes extension periods that will
expire March 31, 2015. The Standing Offers provides Government
of Canada departments and agencies access to prequalified firms
with expertise, experience and capacity necessary to achieve
value for money.
As a next step in the development of new POR Standing Offers,
PWGSC is seeking comments from suppliers on a number of topics. 

7.1)   Research Streams

The current Standing Offers for POR services includes the
following research streams:

1.	Fieldwork and Data Tabulation  Telephone
2.	Fieldwork and Data Tabulation  Online
3.	Online Pre-testing of Advertising
4.	Series A  Qualitative-Aboriginal Stream
5.	Series A  Qualitative-Ethno-cultural Stream
6.	Series A  Qualitative-General Population Stream
7.	Series B  Quantitative-Aboriginal Stream
8.	Series B  Quantitative -Ethno-cultural Stream
9.	Series B  Quantitative -General Population Stream
10.	Series C  Qualitative/Quantitative-Aboriginal Stream
11.	Series C  Qualitative/Quantitative -Ethno-cultural Stream
12.	Series C  Qualitative/Quantitative General Population
Stream

Given the minimal usage of a number of these research streams,
PWGSC is considering reducing the research streams to the
following:

1.	Series A  Field and Data Tabulation for Telephone Surveys;
2.	Series B  Qualitative Research for all target populations
and qualitative research 		methods;
3.	Series C  Quantitative Research for all target populations
and quantitative research 		methods;
4.	Series D  Qualitative/Quantitative Research for all target
populations and research 		methods; and
5.	Series E  Web-Site Usability Testing.

We would welcome comments from suppliers regarding what further
enhancements and/or efficiencies could be gained for the
Government of Canada in the upcoming process to achieve value
for money within any of the proposed streams.


7.2)   Other

Are there any other comments you wish to provide regarding the
renewal of the Standing Offers?
